I've read some of his articles and even the text of a sermon he delivered at Appleton Chapel in Harvard's Memorial Church earlier this year, but haven't read Manliness. I...
Quote: Very few of the tens of thousands of now-surplus condominiums in Miami were conceived to be marketed to subprime borrowers, or minorities—unless you count rich Venezuelans and Colombians as minorities.
